What is Overseerr? πŸ•΅οΈ

Overseerr is a free, open-source software application for managing requests for your media library. It integrates with your existing services, such as Sonarr, Radarr, and Plex!

Let's get started! πŸš€

Make sure you've installed Overseerr from our One-Click Appsβœ… Not sure? Click below to find out!

Welcome to Overseerr!

1. Click the sign-in button and sign in with your Plex credentials

2. Fill in your Hostname, Port, and Server >> Save Changes

**Enter IP first, then refresh the list of servers**

3. After you have added your server, you can now

Sync Libraries >> Enable Libraries >> Start Scan >> Continue

Step # 3 - Connecting Sonarr & Radarr

**You can add multiple Sonarr & Radarr instances. This is especially useful if you have 4K content stored on a separate Plex server.

πŸ”΄ This step will effectively remove your ability to hide Sonarr & Radarr behind our reverse proxy URLs provided to you in your Client Area.

Step 1: Open Radarr and head to Settings > General > click "Show Advanced" > then edit the "Bind Address =" with " * " and save!

Example #1 - Overseerr and *Arr on the same machine

Example #2 - Using Reverse Proxy

This example connects a remote instance of Radarr (or Sonarr) to your Overseerr running on a local machine.

You're all set! You should now be able to see your Overseerr homepage 🀯
